- A thirty-minute drive from Cauayan proper is the rejuvenating ambiance of El Tzino Beach Resort. They offer different choices of accommodation at a very reasonable price, but if you want a more adventurous type of lodging, tent rentals are also available. With approachable and friendly staff, El Tzino Beach Resort is probably an ideal place for the whole family!
- El Tzino Beach Resort have airconditioned beach houses, cottages, and log room. Guests can sing their hearts out with the resort’s videoke machine available for rentals! Some other fun and relaxing services that El Tzino Beach Resort offers include whole body massage, paddle boarding, and kayaking.

Resort – the word connotes relaxation or pleasure. This IS NOT the case when it comes to this place.
First of all, their Facebook page has no information as to what services they offer. Not even a description to tell me that if you don’t bring anything to eat, I will starve! Thank goodness being Pinoy, my family packed up food!
I booked a room that is good for 8 people according to them,, paid almost 5K. The room is only furnished with 2 double beds and is not suitable for 8 people! It is more than big enough you are 8 sardines!!! oh yeah, they provided an extra floor mattress 🙄
Going back to the definition of a resort, not relaxing at all. When I asked if they have available rooms, they hesitated to show me the room and told me I have to pay more than the price of the room we already occupied because they have new furnishing. Whatever! They have scheduled rate depending on the number of occupants of the room. Let’s take their Flamingo room for example – 2 pax 2500; 3-4 pax 3600; 5-8 pax 4500. Yet the staff told me it’s 4500. I am not paying for another close to 5K for 3-4 people!
NO wifi! It is fine for people who wants to disconnect from the world but people should have that option for themselves to make. The area that has good cell signal is about 200 feet away, the parking lot! in emergency cases, people will be helpless.
NO TV in the room. The rain poured in less that 30 minutes after we checked in. We did not have anything to do except stare at each other. If you have children you want to experience how to die from boredom, this would be the perfect place.
NO FOOD service except breakfast. No info was provided ahead of time we could order something they can cook. But place to go unwind, it will kill you with hunger. We asked for hot water for tea and believe it or not, we were charged for the hot water!!!
Staff members must be family members. Sitting on the porch outside our room, people come and go by the “front desk” which is also the kitchen and the bar area. People would come to have a drink of water. They would grab cups, get a drink of water from the water jug, “rinse” it with tap water and replaced back on the disk rack – THEY DO NOT WASH IT WITH SOAP! And they cook for people!!! They are not wearing face masks all the time either.
The following morning, the occupants next door checked out. They “fumigated” the room, opened the door and the fumes came out and we inhaled it while sitting outside our room.
We checked out ahead of schedule, with 2-night reservation, 1 night of this hell was enough to know it will not get better.
As I mentioned earlier, this does not promote relaxation. We left more stressed than when we arrived.
